Actor Jack Raynor has been cast in Ridley Scott’s new TV series based on the life of rocket engineer & occultist Jack Parsons. I think there is some resemblance?

Deadline describes the series, Strange Angel, as follows:

Strange Angel is inspired by the real-life story of Jack Parsons and explores the dramatic intersection between genius and madness, science and science fiction.

Reynor will play Jack Parsons, a brilliant and ambitious blue-collar worker of 1930s Los Angeles who started as a janitor at a chemical factory but had fantastical dreams that led him to birth the unknown discipline of American rocketry. Along the way, he fell into a mysterious world that included sex magic rituals at night, and he became a disciple of occultist Aleister Crowley. Parsons used Crowley’s teachings of self-actualization to support his unimaginable and unprecedented endeavor to the stars.

Reynor is most known for the movies Sing Street and Transformers: Age Of Extinction. This will be quite a role for him to fill.
